A place to declare your weekly results
Jesica Lou welcome to our happy band of losers i to found that the weight loss increased when i combined running with the controlling my eating through Weight Watchers i had been trying for about 2 years to lose the weight on my own without any luck
But have to say have no one to blame but myself and my total lack of self control keep posting and let us know how thing progress
I'm making good progress with the physio, not quite ready for running, but at least able to start some swimming. The good news is my weight has pretty much levelled off at 12 stone, 1 stone heavier than I was in October for Mara, but still nearly 2 stone lighter than I was 18 months ago. Considering I haven't been able to do much traininng since the marathon for various reasons, and that my diet has been less than ideal, I'm pretty pleased that their hasn't been to much damage done on the scales.
Great photos Toby, fantastic progress.
*waves to everyone.
well have to say I'm a bit shocked had a really bad weekend eating wise and was expecting to have put some weight on instead a some how manages to lose another 0.5lbs don't ask me how I've no idea how i did it
8 miles done today run took 1:13:18 with and Avg pace of 8:56 m/m
had to order a new pair of running shoes as the old ones are now Waring badly were i come down on the outside edge of my heel ordered them from the start fitness web site and with another pair of running tights as i let Snowmaiden have one of mine with the discount code the two items came to less than i paid for my current running shoes from the running shop
Did 10 miles on Saturday and a lovely (yes, really!) 20 miles yesterday. Parked up at Pembrey country park, which is a huge site full of pine forest trails. So did some trail running before heading our along the coast, then back into the park for more trails. All in all, it took about 3.30 so I took advice from the Brighton Marathon thread to slow my LSRs down!
Weight-wise, I'm still hovering around the mark I've been for a while. Need to kick myself into gear again!
Toby - sounds like you had a bargain! Got my race pack through for Llanelli today. Will be in touch in a day or so to work out how/where to meet you.
JLB - good news with the physio and the damage limitation!
Good running all, my first marathon is on Sunday at Pitsford, actually getting abit nervous as only a small field of about 200 and I am not the quickest runner, but it is only really meant to be a training run, but I thionk the competitive streak is coming out in me.
Weight wise at 12st 7lbs, which is good for me, could do with abit less but much less and I dont have the energy for my long runs.
take care evryone and keep up all the good work
